Aurora police say a couple was shot and killed after responding to an online advertisement for a used car. Investigators say 18-year-old Kyree Brown admitted to stealing the 2017 Toyota RAV4 and posting it for sale on the Letgo app. When Joseph and Jossline Roland met him to buy the car, with thousands of dollars in cash, Brown allegedly pulled a gun and shot them as they tried to get away.
According to the arrest affidavit, the Rolands left home at about 11 p.m. on Aug. 14 to meet the seller at Southlands Mall.
Brown said he met the couple at the mall and told them he accidentally brought the wrong vehicle title. He asked them to follow him to an apartment on East Cornell Circle near South Parker Road.
Brown said he pointed the gun at Joseph Roland, while the couple was still in their car, and demanded the money. He said Joseph Roland grabbed his arm and said the car started moving. Brown said the decided to shoot Joseph and accidentally shot Jossline.
Joseph and Jossline Roland died later at the hospital.
Brown allegedly told police he took $3,000 from the couple and tried to set the stolen RAV4 on fire near Havana Street and East Colfax Avenue.

Let me guess
Another martyr for the black community.
The Amish again.
Let me guess
We all knew
Just another young black male doing what most of them do.
Who is Kyree Brown, and why is this posted in news/activism?
He will be on the street in a short few years to do it again.
Lesson learned. Don’t go meet someone named Kyree after 11 PM while carrying a large amount of cash.
Cash? That’s weird. I did buy a car with cash once. The seller and I drove to the bank and the cash traded hands in the bank lobby after I pulled it out of my account right there. That was in 1981.
Otherwise I used a check when buying used cars. I would never show up to someone’s (who I’ve never met) home with a wad of cash. It could be a robbery.
Who goes to buy a car at 11 pm?.................
The good news is that none of America’s best and brightest will have this guy to compete with in the job market.
They agreed to meet the killer at 11PM at a mall, not a wise move on their part. Our sheriff dept advises daytime in a well trafficked area for these kinds of transactions. They even suggest the parking lot of their office as a safe place to meet online sellers.
i’m shocked by this news. The picture was obviously photo shopped.
my dad took a check when he sold our car, the bank said the check had been canceled, when dad called the guy he said his son wrecked the car and dad could come get it, it was totalled.
Indeed! 11 PM with cash...what could possibly go wrong? Truly a stupid plan.
Cash used to be a bargaining tool.
